High Quality AA and AF

 

 

While we test all our games with maximum in-game settings, turning on Anti-Aliasing (AA) and Antistrophic Filtering (AF) helps take the intensity of our testing to another level.

 

Here we see video cards go from playable FPS to unplayable FPS and the real power houses continue to help break that 60 FPS mark we always aim for to provide a smooth gaming experience.

While Metro Last Light manages to see a slight performance increase, the numbers on a whole are just too low for the game to be playable.

Just Cause 2 sees a slight performance increase, and, on a whole, you can see that we just continue to see very strong numbers at both resolutions.

While not a huge increase at either resolution, the extra 3 FPS at 1920 x 1200 gives us a 66 FPS average, which is appreciated as we manage to get a bit more breathing room.
